Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz said a bombshell, disputed BuzzFeed News report about President Trump is a "black eye" for the news outlet and the media in general. Moving on, Giuliani said Trump "had no conversations" about the Moscow project, before reversing course and declaring, "I shouldn't say he had no conversations".
He concluded by saying the Moscow project "was in the earliest stage and did not advance beyond a free non-binding letter of intent". "They alleged there were texts and emails that corroborated that Cohen was saying the president told him to lie". All of those statements were false, according to court papers.
It remains unclear when or if discussions about building Trump Tower Moscow officially ended.

Cormier admitted that they weren't "in that room" and don't actually know the wording used in their infamous claim about what Trump said to Cohen, just the essence of its meaning. Cohen says he lied to minimize the public understanding of Trump's Russian Federation ties, to try to limit the various Russian Federation investigations and to be consistent with Trump's "political messaging".
Cohen was sentenced in December to three years in prison for financial crimes, lying to Congress and for two violations of campaign finance law.

The BuzzFeed News story sparked immediate backlash from Democratic lawmakers and a denial from Giuliani. Mueller's office took the unusual step of issuing a statement disputing the story. "My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions".

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said he may have continued to pursue the project and had discussions about it with his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, until as late as October or November 2016, when Trump was closing in on his election victory against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Giuliani's suggestion that dialogue about the Trump Tower project could have stretched into the fall of 2016 extends the timeline for negotiations well beyond what the president has publicly acknowledged. Giuliani also leaves open the possibility that Trump and Cohen might have discussed Cohen's testimony. "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal".
